Real Betis vs Real Madrid Prediction
Real Madrid need to win after four consecutive draws. Especially painful was the last one against Eibar, theoretically a week team that should have been easy to beat. However, Los Blancos played the worst game of the season and Zizou had reasons to be angry. Good news is that Cristiano Ronaldo seems in good shape after scoring four goals in two games with Portugal.
Betis are having several problems to win the games and the team has not understood yet what Poyet wants. They are struggling in La Liga and have not shown a good level yet. Against Barcelona or Sevilla the team didn’t have the possession and had little opportunities to score a goal.
Real Madrid failed to win last season at Benito Villamarín Stadium. Los Blancos drew (1-1) with Benzema scoring the only goal. It was Zinedine Zidane first game without victory on the bench. Although the French manager has good memories of this stadium because he scored one of the best goals in his career. Real Madrid thrashed (0-5) Betis two seasons ago.
